Lawrence Ellis, with vast wealth and power, has made it known that he wants control of Signal Bend, Missouri.

I really enjoyed the first book in the series, but this book... this book was on an entirely different level. Behold the Stars was intense, raw, and gave me all the feels. I broke out into tears several times while reading this, but the way it ended left me with a smile on my face.

Lilli and Isaac have been through a lot in the short time they've been together. They've been tested time and time again, but they've always came out on top. Lawrence Ellis is someone who's been trying to ru

A vigorous Lilli who doesn't mince matters. :)
"Fuck, guys. I'm sure everybody's dick is equally enormous, okay? I promise I'm not staking a claim on the damn chair. I'll say what I came to say and leave you to your circle jerk."

I enjoyed Move the Sun very much and I was thrilled to read the continuation of Isaac and Lilli's story in Behold the Stars. The story started off very strong and I was smiling like a crazy fool. Clearly, I was in a great place. It

Signal Bend was one of those dying rural towns that peppered the Midwest




This one picks up a couple of months after the first book ended. Isaac and Lilli are still together, the town is still under threat.


Isaac would be forty in a few months and he'd never thought he'd have or even want a family beyond the Horde


Lawrence Ellis still wants to take over the town. The Horde is opposed to Ellis, they want to try and keep the town "clean". But Ellis has friends and connections in high places and

It's been a while since I've visited Signal Bend, so I was looking forward to catching up with Lilli, Isaac and the Horde. But all is not good in this little biker town, big time bad guy, Lawrence Ellis still wants Signal Bend and things are about to get messy. War is coming. Can Isaac keep everyone safe?

Wow this book packed a very powerful punch! Lilli and Isaac go through the ringer but they do it together. As for the small town of Signal Bend, Missouri it’s now seriously famous y’all!

Overall, a very good read that only further instilled my love for Isaac and Lilli. The town faces down evil, a full out war in the streets. Lilli and Isaac grow stronger while hurting, healing and learning to overcome. My poor Showdown… sniff he just broke my hea

4.5 Badass Biker Stars!

I'm going to keep this rather short and sweet since it's smack dab in the middle of a series and I don't want to spoil it.

I really liked this one. It was the continuation of Isaac and Lilli's love story and, although I felt the first third of it was rather ho hum, it picked way up in intensity and plot for the remainder of the book. I think we needed the ho hum to establish their bond and especially Isaac's commitment to keeping Lilli and, frankly, his city safe from Ell

I'm taking back what I said in the first book about this being a milder MC series. BEHOLD THE STARS changed my mind. It was grittier and in one spot made me sick to my stomach. At 37% my stomach was hurting and I began a mind battle-> I didn't want to continue reading but I also couldn't make myself look away. Then a few percents later I started leaking tears. My heart broke for the situation that surrounded this MC.

★★★★☆ 4.5 Stars!



Behold the Stars is the second book in the Signal Bend series by Susan Fanetti and a continuation of Isaac and Lilli's story. Told from alternating POV's, written in third person tense, we follow Lilli and Isaac as they struggle to maintain a tied lid on the safety of the small town Signal Bend, Missouri. The Night Horde MC members are doing everything in their power to keep everyone safe but their enemy might be too big, even for them, to handle.

There was so much going on. Just when I thought everything was settling down, something else would happen. It was nonstop action from the beginning. Ellis and his men are still a problem and the club has to find the best way to take him down and hopefully build Signal Bend back up again.

Loved the conclusion of Isaac and Lilli's story! Seriously two of the best MCs I have had the pleasure of reading about, one of my favorite couples of all time.



Behold the Stars picks up where Move the Sun left off. The threat from Ellis remains and the club has to figure out how to take him down.

This conclusion was action packed and I loved every minute of it. It more gritty and just felt more like an MC book. Lilli and Isaac still shared their insane sexual chemistry and their connection is j

I strongly believe that this has to be one of the most emotional MC series out there as well as one of the best written...and I have only gotten done with the 2nd book! WHOA...this is so damn good!

So Back in Signal Bend....Back into the world of the Horde...



It has not been easy for Lilli and Isaac, but they are together and they are working everyday at this new LOVE.



That big bad threat is still suffocating the town. People are on edge. The Horde is a doing their best to cope..

Holy crap, this was one bumpy ride !!!

First of all, don't read this one if you haven't read book 1 first. Also if you haven't read 1 and you intend to do so, you should know that the first two books are about the same couple.

I will keep this review simple though, because I don't want to ruin the story for anyone, so this review will be about my feelings mostly. I had a lot of them while reading this.....feelings that is.

"Honor and chivalry; sometimes it was best found under letter kuttes und unruly beards."


Everything is not okay. Lilli and Isaac didn't just ride off into to the sunset together, besides the big thread of Ellis hanging over their head...these two have even bigger problems at home...for now.

How they fight and deal with their issues feels raw and very real...it's not sunshine and daisies and the characters stay very true to themselves, just like in a real relat

WOW....



This continuation of Isaac and Lilli's story was an emotional one. My heart broke for Show and his family. He suffered the most through out the war in this book and lost everything. I can kinda understand why Holly did what she did, but then again it was a really weak, bitchy thing to do. And the kittens did me in, Where's the tissue box??



What kind of heartless bastard could do such a thing? Oh Ellis, that's right. Luckily Lilli, is still a kick ass army chick!!

"Isaac questioned what the Night Horde had become if they'd reached a place where what they were about to do was the right course. He didn't know how he was going to live with this day on his conscience..."

This was so, so, soooo good. I enjoyed book one more, though, in that this book took a turn for the dark and nauseating more than one time. I will explain later on in a spoiler for those who would like a disclaimer.

I don't want to discourage any readers from reading this series because WOW!

We are back in Signal Bend, just a few months from where Move the Sun ends. Both Isaac and Lilli are still healing from what has just happened. Isaac is experiencing feelings that he has never felt before as well as Lilli. For Lilli it is her loss of self protection and strength and Isaac it was the fear of losing the one he truly loved.

Lilli continues to be an amazing heroine. Though I feel that we saw a softer side of her in Behold the Stars, at her core, she was still that fighter. Lilli was

Behold The Stars was one hell of a ride. It's the continuation of Isaac and Lily's story. This was all about accepting yourself and your flaws. Especially Lily. She was struggling with herself and what happened to her in Move The Sun. She's an independent woman and now Isaac is very protective of her which she hates because she's not weak. She's anything but that. They both and the MC club have to go through a lot. Losing club members along the way. Isaac and Lily have to find their way back to ...more

What a roller coaster!! I. Could. Not. Put. This. Down. This second book was grittier with a lot more dark, gut-wrenching moments yet it was still beautifully moving.



There was a lot more angst and turmoil and at times, I was a disaster! Beside myself with tears, rage and despair. Bravo, Ms. Fanetti!!



I think I have found THE one. Isaac is perfection. He’s strong, intelligent, all Alpha, raw and yet, he can be sweet and tender. He is the ultimate man!

Continuing my re-read of the Night Horde MC and loving every minute of it. I'm forming new and deeper relationships with characters who I've felt connected to forever.

I was on the fence about Book 1, but this Book 2 absolutely sold me on this series. We are still with the first couple, Isaac and Lilli, as we see how their relationship progress in the midst of all the havoc in town. The violence was kicked up a notch and the romance got even more emotional and intense.

Lilli had officially move in with Isaac and become his old lady. But due to her presumed failure in Book 1, she was disappointed with herself and wanted to prove to Isaac that she didn't need him
